This may be the best animation I’ve ever created. Read more about the production after the cut. Continue reading →
This project was a collaborative effort between myself and my friends Tiffany Salone and Krista Christophe. We made it for Aniboom’s Sesame Street Competition. Until May 9th you can go vote for it here. You will have to register for Aniboom and then rank it 5 stars. (You can also watch other animations and rank those.) Because I’m sure people are very curious, here’s a quick behind the scenes explanation of how we made it.
Several years in the making, this is the first chapter of my animated webseries
The initial concept for this series first came to me in Summer 2006. Script development began in Spring 2007. I started filming in February 2009. I put in about 102 hours of animating and countless hours of building, recording, editing and so forth. Used a bunch of new techniques (for me) – masking, blue screening and lip syncing. This was filmed on my Sony DSC-H7.
Now available on DVD!
This was a quick experiment I did in a weekend to try our animating using Motion. I’m pretty pleased with most of it. The music is Faust Arp from the album In Rainbows by Radiohead. This was too late for the Aniboom Radiohead contest.
This short trailer for an imaginary movie started out as a simple birthday gift for my friend Anat Benzvi. I used the pieces from LEGO sets 7770 and 7092 to make the characters and was planning to take some photographs and make a story book as part of the present. Months later I wrote this script with the idea of entering it in a Trailer Festival. I missed that deadline, but was able to enter it in the 2008 Nicktoons “Built By Me” Contest. It tied for 2nd place. I also entered it in the 2008 University of Chicago NSIT 5 Minute Film Festival and won “Most Humorous” and “Best Picture”.
